    Yeah high temperatures are good for our car surely, it should help with the tyres. As it is a low tyre wear track, The HS tyres will have probably much better grip as US.

    Clarity in the oil consumption dispute

    Nobody tricks with the oil

    Finally, there is clarity in the dispute over oil consumption. At the request of Mercedes, the FIA ​​has specified what they mean by the limited to 0.6 liters per 100 kilometers of oil consumption. This includes all the oil, including the one used in the turbocharger.


    It was just a suspicion. The smoking Ferrari engines made the competition suspicious. Was everything right there, or did Ferrari find a way around the oil consumption limit of 0.6 liters per 100 kilometers? And if so, how? The engine engineers racked their brains on how to outsmart Article 20 of the Technical Regulations. Until one had the idea, one could press the oil into the combustion chambers via a "leaky" gasket in the turbocharger's supercharger, but not count it for consumption because the turbocharger is by definition not an engine.

    On May 14, Mercedes sent a request to the FIA. The engine engineers in Brixworth wanted to know if the oil consumed in the turbocharger counts to 0.6 liters. And if so, would the combined consumption of lubricant in the engine and turbocharger have to be counted towards consumption limits?

    The turbocharger is part of the engine

    The answer from Charlie Whiting came immediately. In a circular letter to the four engine manufacturers, the FIA ​​race director made it clear that all oils used in the drive unit fall under Article 20. From the point of view of the World Association, the turbocharger is the engine. Accordingly, the oil burned in the internal combustion engine and the turbocharger must be included in the total consumption.

    The shot of Mercedes was obviously directed against Ferrari. But he missed his goal. We hear from circles of the FIA ​​that none of the four engine manufacturers have to rebuild their oil system or the turbocharger. If someone had tricked in this area, he would have had to modify his turbocharger with immediate effect. Neither of the controls found a separate oil circuit for the turbocharger. This is the topic of the table. The battery affair, however, is still smoldering. But it should clarify the course of the weekend.

    Sooooo in short, Our car passed the oil test suspicion from Mercedes!!!!

    Yeah that is true....don’t know if that’s just a rumour made up by someone or if we indeed are doing something clever/cheating there to gain some Hp

    Our engine doesn't have more power but is the way we use it. We have a power efficiency more than Mercedes. The battery and the smoke is the lure that Ferrari is using to distract the other teams. We are in a good fight!

    Ferrari to experiment with old suspension in Monaco



    Ferrari will test with its old suspension in the Monaco Grand Prix, amid growing hints that a new development avenue it trialled in Spain cost it performance.



    The Maranello-based team has worked extensively since the last race in Barcelona to try to get to the bottom of why Sebastian Vettel was unable to match the pace of the Mercedes.

    What was especially concerning was that the team suffered much higher levels of tyre degradation in Spain than it had encountered in pre-season testing.

    One suggestion that has emerged has been that changes it made to its rear suspension for the Spanish Grand Prix may have had a knock-on effect in hurting its tyre management.

    A new suspension upright had a much more aggressive transition – allowing a wider and flatter surface – which was designed to help improve the aerodynamics of the car in that area.

    However, while being better for downforce, it may also have contributed to the tyres overheating more, which triggered the degradation issues.

    Speaking ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix, Vettel said that the team had focused a lot of effort in the Barcelona test last week to understand more about what had gone wrong.


    The result appears to be that there are doubts over the new rear suspension, which is why Vettel's car was fitted with the old version ahead of opening practice in Monaco.

    It is unclear at this stage, however, whether he will commit to this version for the remainder of the weekend or will switch back to the newer specification for qualifying and the race.

    "I think it is fair to summarise that Barcelona was not a strong race for us," said Vettel. "Saturday was actually pretty good, but Sunday we fell a little bit behind.

    "So it was good we had the opportunity on Tuesday/Wednesday to get into the race situation again to understand a bit better with time and laps.

    "There are a couple of ideas we have and things we believe that may have caused a weak race or weak pace during the race.

    "But for here it is not that relevant because it is a completely different track. But going forward, time will tell whether we found a good direction."

    It is surely not a do or die weekend, the season is still very much young. I hope we will have no problems with retirements or accidents, they have cost us a lot of points in both standings. It will be an interesting weekend...

    Fp1 is not representative...!!! It’s fp2 where conditions would be similar to quali & race, in fp3 Ferrari will nail the set-up

    I think its the suspension where ferrari is very much losing time to both merc and rb, kimi wasnt happy with rear grip earlier and the car doesnt look planted at all compared to rb on the corners

    But I thought we reverted back to old suspension for Monaco at least at Sebs car to see if that was the culprit for high tire wear in Barca

    I think thats right, maybe the older suspension has weaker turn angle at higher speeds or worse grip compared to the one at spain but better tyre wear or something like that, meanwhile fia attacking our battery now

    After FP1 the RBR looks the dominant force here, hope we will be at least infont of Mercedes. Its early times, FP2 will tell more.
